Always a favorite, Retro Con’s Truly Outrageous Karaoke Contest will be back for Retro Con 2017!!

To be held on Saturday at the show, sign-ups will be in the lobby of Hall C (sign-up and competition times To Be Determined soon!). We will make an announcement over the PA system when we are ready to accept entrants. Depending how strong interest is, we may have to institute a lottery-type system to pick our 15 contestants. There are no sign-up fees or age restrictions.

We will have a wide variety of 80’s classics to choose from. Most will have on-screen lyrics to follow along with, but we will also be supplementing these with a few geek-related favorites that will have a *lyrics sheet only*. Consider these “extra credit” choices! 

The full list of song choices can be found HERE!
